Everyone wants to live a happier, healthier and simpler lifestyle.
I'm a longtime minimalist, a longtime vegan, and a lover of all things simple, but there are many steps I've taken over the years to get to where I am today. These the top ways that have helped me live a simpler and healthier lifestyle along with some of my favorite inspirational websites and books for you to get more information on each.
1. go natural
Spend more time in nature, enjoying the scenery and breathing fresh air. Studies have shown eco-therapy improves your mental health and happiness.
Humans are happier and healthier walking outside, not confined in little boxes.
2. go mindful
Learn to live in the now and be happy. To be fully present in the current moment and not worry about the past or the future.
You can train your brain to not go into autopilot mode so often that you can be fully aware and appreciate life.
5. go plastic-free
Plastic is ruining the planet. It's made from non-renewable fossil fuels, it's full of harmful toxins and chemicals that disrupt hormones, it's polluting the oceans and killing sea life, and it doesn't degrade!
6. go chemical-free
Toxic chemicals like chemical dyes, dioxin and formaldehyde can cause skin, immune and respiratory problems.
You can easily make all your own natural and non-toxic cleaning and personal care products.
7. go zero-waste
8. go tiny
Declutter, organize, and downsize your stuff and your life into a simpler space.
Living tiny lets you focus on what matters. You can apply these principles to your life anywhere or you can build a tiny house with your own hands and live anywhere you want, mortgage free!
